Telecommuting is extremely common these days and enabling the owner to work from home was a very important factor in the layout of this home. The home office is tucked away from the rest of the home, being located over the garage and served by its own stairway. While designing this feature, Lynn felt it would be necessary for the office to have a bath for convenience, as well. The home boasts an expansive custom kitchen and over-sized laundry room/craft area. The mater suite is on the main floor and, being on a wooded lot, the screened porch was a necessity.
Located in southwestern Ft. Wayne, this 5 bedroom two-story sits on a finished walk-out basement. The master suite is located on the main level and the kitchen combines with a spacious hearth room. The exterior is substantially brick which provides for durable and maintenance-free protection from the elements. Situated on the edge of a wooded area, the screened-in deck provides for a pest free entertainment option in the summer months.
This one-of-a-kind contemporary home was co-designed by Lynn Delagrange and Melisa Flickinger. Although the home offers 3 bedrooms and 2 baths on the second floor, it was designed primarily for one-level living that the owners desired. Formal living and dining areas are accompanied by the more comfortable family room and nook on the main floor. The exercise room is accessed directly off of the master bedroom and they are conveniently located on the main floor as well. The home was designed to wrap around the outdoor family room and in-ground pool and these areas can be viewed from most rooms in the home.
This home was designed by L ynn and was an entry in the Town and Country home show presented by the Ft. Wayne Home Builders Association. It attracted many visitors and was well received according to the many positive comments from the public. The three bedroom home with den sits on a full finished walk-out basment with a 4th bedroom and kitchenette.
The owners of this home are aviation enthusiasts and so it made sense to locate their home close to an airstrip. The home site they found was not only near an airstrip but adjacent to it with a private taxiway to the runway. This allowed the owners the luxury of having the hangar for their airplane attached to the home. A few years after completion we were contacted by the owners to do an unattached maintenance barn which is pictured in this gallery.
